You're claiming this is optimal? 1221 is still far, far too many to sort
through. They also all have obscure names. DevFS is infinitely clearer.

Same goes, anyway; this discussion doesn't belong here, unless it's in
the context of "should kernel-image have it". Please move it either
off-list or to l-k; I won't continue any further on-list.
